Bird hunting areas, commonly known as "blocks" are on average about 400 sq. miles in size. A maximum of 8 shooters may be booked into one block. To be sure of getting the best blocks at the right time of year it is advisable to confirm your booking at least six months in advance.

South Eastern Kenya

Our preferred site is not far from Amboseli National Park. It is about 100 miles south of Nairobi.  This part of Kenya is mostly acacia savannah, lying at an altitude of 3,500-4,000ft. and has a pleasant, moderate climate (July and August are the coolest months).

The Masai people living in the area whom over the years have got to know well are experts at rounding up flocks for driven guinea fowl. Spurfowl are plentiful and when weather conditions are good sand grouse and doves are available. Each shooter has a Masai guide to help with carrying shells, dead birds and generally showing the way. They are friendly, welcoming people with a strong traditional culture that provides an interesting additional attraction.

There are fine views of Mount Kilimanjaro, and animals including giraffe, impala, zebra and wildebeest are plentiful providing good wildlife-viewing for non-shooters. In addition to the wildlife which can be seen around camp there are large herds of elephant, buffalo and other species in nearby Amboseli  National Park…an easy day trip.

Northern Kenya

Here we camp in Shaba Game Reserve. We hunt around the game reserve boundary for francolin, spurfowl, sand grouse and a favorite called the Vulturine Guinea fowl.

At the base of MT. Kenya's northern foothills starts a semi-desert country, popularly known as the Northern Frontier District. It is a harsh spectacular land, peopled by proud and fiercely independent nomads who wander in search of water and grazing for their herds of sheep, goats and camels. The Shaba National Reserve lies in this area. The scenic beauty and ecological importance of the reserve centers around the Uaso Nyiro River. Doum palms rustle in the warm dry winds. Mountains, hills and rocky inselbergs form a magnificent backdrop to the Reserves wildlife. In the dry season large numbers of elephant concentrate in the riverine woodland and a wide variety of ungulates are to be seen here. Including those adapted to semi desert conditions such as Gerenuk, Guenther`s dikdik, Oryx and Grevy`s zebra.

Another hunting destination is Kalacha springs. This is a fly-in location situated in the far North of Kenya specifically good for sand grouse.
